We arrived at the Basel Airport mid morning. Having reservations at Hotel Basel we were able to use the tram for free. Once we arrived at the hotel we were given a mobility pass to use for trams and busses around the city!! This was a perfect place to stay before our River Cruise. Hotel Basel was the perfect location...

I've stayed in 1000s of hotels all over the world. Many of them supposedly 5 or even 6 stars. But none have come close to Hotel Basel. The beds were heavenly and the down pillows and duvet perfect. The airconditioning actually worked and was properly adjustable (it was exceptionally warm when we were there). The breakfast whilst simple was always...

We spent one night in the Hotel Basel & found this hotel very much to our liking. The location is great for walking tours, access to transportation & museums. All the staff were very helpful & courteous & the rooms were more than adequate.

Love this hotel. It is in the best location but more importantly, it's the staff who are always friendly and helpful. The food is excellent too and the mobility pass give access to all areas in the city.

The rooms are clean and well appointed. The staff is unbelievably friendly. And who could ask for a better location. Use the included train passes and go everywhere in Basel as the tram stop is meters away. Friday and Saturday markets are one lock away. Shopping is all around and great food is in the lobby or around the corner.

We only visited the restaurant in this hotel and it was a very good experience. We made the unintentional error of visiting Basel on Easter Monday and the city was shut. So after a journey to Basel with a wailing 4 month old baby, going frm street to street, we finally stumbled upon the restaurant of this hotel. It was...

We stayed in 1 of 2 suites in the hotel, 516. Outstanding views of Old Basel and just 1-block from the Marketplaz and the tram stop. If you don't mind paying-in-advance you can get this type of room for just a little more than a regular room. Very modern furnishings in a nicely renovated very old building. The staff was...

Hotel Basel is located in the Old Town where cars are not allowed. There are many restaurants and shops in walking distance making it very convenient. The room was spotless and well appointed with good reading lamps and a modern bathroom. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
